The Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics Summer School is a hands-on summer school for graduate students and early career researchers on the challenges and Best-in-Class solutions for Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics (SSRR).

This intensive five-day educational and development summer school has been established by members of the SSRR research community, including members of the Organising Committee of the International RoboCupRescue Robot League, to better address the rapidly growing need for effective robotic solutions in emergency response scenarios. The continuation of the highly successful Rescue Robotics Camps held in Rome from 2004 to 2007, it will consist of single tracked lectures and multi-tracked, focused, hands-on practical sessions lead by world class researchers, developers and responders. It will also leverage the outcomes of the preceding ROS RoboCup Rescue Summer School (to be held mid-August in Graz, Austria), such as common software modules for autonomy and mapping.

This event is open to all researchers interested in a broad understanding of the SSRR field, coupled with in-depth knowledge of specific topics of great current relevance. We welcome participants from outside the RoboCupRescue Robot League community and in particular those interested in participating in the DARPA Robotics Challenge and who would like to leverage the wealth of experience from the RoboCupRescue Robot League and the broader SSRR community.
